's -- >> compromise and obvious package, the question is, is president obama going to lead on that? melissa: why does you have to go first? couldn't you show him up and come up with a good proposal out of the gate? >> anybody could do that. it will simply not have the credibility, garner the attention without the president leading, that is number one. the number two, the reason he has to go first, he really pulled back in all previous negotiations when it fell apart about a year ago. republicans need to be convinced that he is game for this and he is open to this obvious compromise. republicans have made that step before. the republicans on the so-called super-committee, basically proposed a version of this beforr. melissa: but, don't you just look like obstructionists? seems like just from a negotiating standpoint, if you hop out there first and say we have come to the table with a solution, no matter what, the other side then is saying no, they look like they're the problem? so why not go first? >> well, i mean i think speaker boehner basically did that the day after the election. now obviously the

have to be extremely careful how you do it because we've looked at the economics and run obama's plan through our economic model and found that for every dollar that it would increase in federal tax revenues it would rrduce gdp by $10. that is a very poor tradeoff as to have higher tax revenues but lower gdp and economic growth. that's not the direction that we want to head. if you're going to increase taxes we should do it through economic growth. that comes through smart tax policy, not dumb tax policy. melissa: but they always say, if you don't, the wealthy won't miss it. they will just pay a little bit more. it is fair their share. it will help close the gap. how do you respond to that? >> all of that money is locked up into productive activity whether in a business or the stock market or somewhere else. so the more that you tax that income, that means there's less investment, there's less for the business. there is less for hiring. it has to come from somewhere. it is not a costless exercise and ultimately that trickles down to workers through lower productivity and lower wages.

president obama's budget by .7 of 1%? you're talking about is .7 of 1%. this argument is about .7 of 1%. why do we keep having this conversation instead after conversation about controlling spending, about really closing this gap or doing something else to really close this gap? i mean i just wonder why this conversation keeps coming to the fore instead of one that would solve the problem? to me it is about pitting people in this country against each other which is not going to get us anywhere. >> but, melissa, in the last year we cut a trillion dollars in spending. president obama is proposing cutting another $3 trillion in spending. we have not been able to agree on one dollar of revenue increases. that's the problem. and this rule is looking at what should be low-hanging fruit, an easy call and yet it is becoming a contentious issue. liz: only because it has become a contentious issue because democrats keep putting it out there to distract how big the gap really is and what it will take to really get there. christian, thanks so much for coming on. i always appreciate it. you make great po
